There seems to be a couple of options out there for this lens. It has a non-removable hood and and a massive protruding front element which does make filter mounting a bit tricky.

Samyang themselves released a holder that takes 161 x 139 x 3 mm filter and Cokin are supposed to have a total of three filters available which isn't much choice. I have also had trouble finding them online.

There's also a Haida 150 x 150 x 2 mm holder which seems like a better option possibly.

Has anyone tried either of these options or any others for this lens?

I'm mainly interested since I want to mount ND filters to this lens for landscape shots.

Does it have a holder on the mount side?? My Tamron 14/2.8 does but it is awkward to use.

It doesn't. I have read a few reviews and it looks like the Haida system is the way to go. It takes Lee filters as well so shouldn't be a problem finding filters for it.

Grad ND's or solid ND's? With solids you could just handhold the filter if need be. Or since you'll be using a tripod a Wimberley Plamp would do the job.

For starters it would be solid ones, but I'd like to use grads in the future as well.
